Royal Agricultural Society (RAS) Foundation scholarships available

The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) Foundation is again supporting education in rural NSW through scholarships of up to $6,000 for students studying Vocational Education Training (VET) courses.

The scholarships are available for individuals studying at registered NSW VET institutions such as TAFE or local colleges and who demonstrate a passion for a career that will strengthen our rural and regional communities.

Cecilia Logan, Manager of the RAS Foundation says the organisation is excited to be able to once again offer a helping hand to students through the VET scholarships programs.

“We all know study can be a costly exercise so the RASF is very pleased to be able to offer financial assistance to students who are displaying a passion for learning and a keenness to give back to their local communities,” she said.

Applicants must be enrolled in or are applying for study in any accredited VET course at an approved Australian education provider and must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

Applications close 11 February 2018. For more information and to submit your application, head to: www.rasnsw.com.au/scholarships
